Crytek, the studio responsible for the Crysis franchise and the positively regarded CryEngine, are set to take a crack at the mobile gaming sphere with a puzzle game.

The game is called “Fibble – Flick ‘n’ Roll” and is currently set to launch for both the iOS and Android platforms during the spring of this year. The pricing and exact release date have not been announced.

The title supposedly sports easy to understand navigation and gameplay based on physics. It features leader boards for competition amongst friends and strangers, and it also rocks its own set of achievements.

In speaking with Develop during GDC, Crytek CEO Cevat Yerli expressed the company’s decision to get into mobile games as exciting. He went on to talk a little about what Crytek can bring to the platform:

“Going mobile is an incredibly exciting step for us as a game development company…

…The way that people play games on mobile devices is a real blessing. This allows us to get back to our roots, experiment and focus our energy on creating great gameplay experiences while still keeping Crytek’s high production values…”

The game’s first teaser trailer sits at the top of this post. You can head to the official site to see some assets or read about the game in a more in-depth fashion.

Does the prospect of seeing the traditionally FPS focused studio of Crytek try their hand at mobile game development excite you? Or, would you rather the studio works on more core titles for the PC and console gaming crowds?
